  • I enjoy coming to The Guenther House. It's more for the atmosphere than the food. The food isn't special but I've liked what I've had so far. The service is really good, coffee and waters are never empty here. Be prepared for the wait though. I've never been seated right away even with a reservation.
  • Historic Guenther House is great for breakfast, the biscuits are a must have. They have outdoor dining, along with heaters and blankets if you get cool. A little museum inside with a store. The location is in a beautiful area of San Antonio, the King Williams District. Historic flour mill is part of the property. A nice experience.
